So according to the website Mentalfloss, the most popular fictional character from  the State of Maine is Paul Bunyan. That may be tough for the people of Minnesota to take, as they claim Paul Bunyan as their own, but I've seen his birth certificate in the City Clerk's Office in Bangor, and it clearly states he was born in Bangor, Maine!

Anyway, it got me thinking. Is there a more popular fictional character from Maine? The only one I could think of instantly was Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King's book "It".
